After breaking the news of his girlfriend's pregnancy Saturday via Us Weekly, the TV personality shared a photo on Instagram on Tuesday of the happy couple and her growing bump. The image shows Ortiz-Magro kneeling before girlfriend Jen Harley, who is currently six months pregnant. In his caption, he thanked "everyone who has been supportive with advice [and] encouragement" and went on to express his joy.
"I couldn't be more excited to be taking this next step in my life!" the reality star wrote, in part.
Thank you to everyone who has been supportive with advice & encouragement. People keep saying becoming a parent is the part of life. I've been blessed enough to have SOO MANY best parts of my life #NotSureIfThatMakesSense 🤔I couldn't be more excited to be taking this next step in my life! #IHearItsLikeHavingAPuppy #ExceptItCries #Talks #EventuallyDrives #EatsEvery2Hours #ShitsEvery23Mins #Naps40TimesADay #Needs4DifferentEducations #GoesToProm #YupICanSeeHowItsLikeHavingAPuppy #MyDogsPromNightWasTheBestDayOfMyLife 🤗🤗 #ThanksEveryoneWhoHasBeenSupportive #SpecialThanksToMyOtherHalf
Ortiz-Magro was previously known for his dramatic off-and-on relationship with Sammi "Sweetheart" Giancola, which was a central part of "Jersey Shore." Since parting in 2014, they seem to be broken up for good, and they apparently aren't on the best of terms. Giancola reportedly chose not to participate in "Jersey Shore Family Vacation" so she wouldn't have to be around her ex.
Both Giancola and Ortiz-Magro are both in relationships now. Before he and Harley got together earlier this year, though, he appeared in Season 2 of the reality show "Famously Single" and dated his co-star Malika Haqq.
The TV personality is famously having a baby now. Best wishes to the growing family.
